During last year’s US presidential race, Streisand threw her support behind another famous American set to visit Israel soon, President Barack Obama. In a National Jewish Democratic Council endorsement video, Streisand defended Obama’s Israel and Iran policies.

“President Obama continues to stand strongly with our ally Israel and in preventing Iran from getting nuclear weapons while implementing the strictest sanctions ever,” Streisand said in the video.
